In this scenario, your organization has struggled during the past year with hiring qualified radiologic technologists (a.k.a. x-ray techs, radiographers, or rad techs) in your state of CA and two neighboring states. After reading an Office of Inspector General (OIG) scope of practice case, your supervisor has become concerned about whether or not your radiologic technologists can legally administer contrast media or dye under the supervision of a physician. If the state allows radiologic technologists to administer contrast media, the organization wants to invest in training radiologic technologists to administer the contrast media rather than hiring additional personnel.
Locate and evaluate the scope of practice information for radiologic technologists for your state and two neighboring states.
